My daughter's mother in law called this past weekend, and I got to thinking about our last trip to the South of France. This was back in 2006, so it has now been close to two years. In talking to her I looked back at all the photos I had on my computer of Provence, and thought I'd share a small taste of just how beautiful it is there. I'm sure many have visited there, but for those who haven't, please enjoy these pictures. I have many, many more, but I really didn't want to list too many, just a little taste. Being from California, I didn't think I would really enjoy Provence because of some of the similarities that we share. I was pleasantly surprised on my first visit in 2004, how beautiful it was. Yes, there were many similarities, but this is after all France, and having said that, it had that magic touch that the French have. We visited may regions of France while living there, and by far my favorite is the Loire Valley, but I think now, it is a tie between the two.
Since my daughter now has connections to the south, her husband being from Toulouse,we will forever have good memories and look forward to more trips down there. Enjoy the photos, and if anyone needs travel advice for that area, just e-mail me!
